Simply beyond gorgeousness!  Recently I had the pleasure of working with wedding photographer extraordinaire, Shannon Stellmacher on this stylized shoot at Annadel Estate Winery, in Sonoma County.  Believe me this is one spot so quaint and rustic it will take your breath away.  Makeup artist and hair stylist, Julie Morgan put all of us together for this shoot and I'm so grateful for her vision every time I look at these magnificent images.  The range of looks Julie created alongside our photographer is amazing.  A word here about the gowns and head chic: I designed them and model Lori Dorfman brought each piece to life creating a sort of magical picture story.  Special thanks to Mary of B-Jeweled for use of the exquisite necklaces and earrings and Nancy Ann Flowers who created all the lovely bouquets.
If perchance you're ever kicking around Valley of the Moon in Sonoma County, do check out Annadel Estate Winery.  The folks who run it seem like good pals you've known all your life offering up some of the finest Roses and Zinfandels . . . .
